UFC - Pass the Popcorn

I don't think any UFC fighters have their own movie (I mean like Ali with Will Smith)(please correct me if I'm wrong). So the question is..... Who should be the first UFC fighter to have a movie made about him and more importantly - why


My pick would be Joice Graycie because his whole career is truely a David vs. Goliath story. The movie could climax with Joice fighting Dan Severn, know what I mean???

Let's Bang!

Mark Kerr has made one "The Smashing Machine"and hes an old UFC fighter so thats been done. Joice is actually Royce but you probably knew that, is that a nickname you made up or what? i would like to see Randy in like an "After Retirment" movie, see how he coaches his guys. His buisness relationship with Bas and the setup of his new training facilities and stuff like that would be cool

I have a feeling that when MMA becomes a much bigger sport in america there might be a movie about royce gracie. the MMA version of ALI. It would take some time for MMA to get that far in America though. Im guessing mabye with in the next 20 years it will happen.

Why the hell would anyone make a movie about Royce Gracie?

I also agree that Ken Shamrock would make a great movie. His great start, his trials against politicians trying to kill MMA, how he trained the lions den, his decline and move onto the WWE, and now his decline to his present day self. He has done more than people give him credit for. This is due to the ungratefulness of human beings hearts. They like hero's, until they cant deliver. Then they forget what happened. The movie should be a good thing to clear Kens name, even if he is a little senile now.

That, or we could do a movie on Tim Sylvia...

Wanna hear a joke?

WHats the only thing that Kimo and Bas Rutten have in common?




They both got killed by Kenny.

Movie on Tim Sylvia! Two thumbs down man! I think a movie about Forrest Griffin would be better! It would be a movie about a man who had a promising future that included a nice cushey job, a family, and a white house with a pickett fence! Then he takes that future and throws it away to be an MMA fighter! That would be an awesome movie! The only problem is I don't know who would play Forrest!

Duuh...Jim Carrey or Johnny Depp cuz he's a master of disguise.


Ken or Royce would make for a good movie. That's about all I can think would be worth a movie right now.If Matt Hughes stays champ through Penn, GSP, TUF4, and Sanchez then he definately deserves a movie. Or maybe Penn beats Hughes next Saturday, then GSP beats Penn, TUF 4 and Sanchez, then Hughes beats GSP, then Penn loses to Hughes finally in their 3rd fight and Hughes retires and that's how the movie ends. But Ken or Royce right now would make the most sense.

matt is a great fighter but not a good movie. i think it would have to be ken or Royce because they both had there ups and there down so it would be a a good climax. matt has just killed everyone but bj so its not much for a movie

people say either the world will end at 2012 or the aliens will finnally come back to us.....


i hope not cuz im writing a sci fi novel
